      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Skeg/prop guard

Recommended Posts

As I was grinding my prop in the gravel, I was thinking that I should protect my prop. I know the welded pitchfork trick, any other sugestions or pre-made ideas?

I recently bought a boat with one of these on it:

I'm guessing there is a little skeg damage, but I have not taken it off to look at it. Anyhow, it doesn't seem to have any negative affect on the performance of the boat. I can't say if it would be any better at protecting your prop, but it seems to stick down a little further than the normal skeg would, so maybe.

The boat has a 15 hp johnson. It is my river boat and used for that purpose only. I have a big boat for other waters, but this one stays in the skinny stuff.

I slapped a Mac's River Runner on my 15hp for the Mississippi.

Costed $100 and dropped my top end from 21mph down to 18mph, but kept a brand new prop spotless during some mean droughts.

I'd say it paid for itself 100 times and my confidence soared.

I'm not saying you'll be able to get through problem areas easier, but at least it won't cost you a $100 prop to try.
